Something’s going to have to give on Friday afternoon in Fridley when the Tigers take on Minneapolis North. Fridley hasn’t given up a touchdown in four games and North averages over 40 points a game on offense.

"We can’t wait to play North. We know they have a great offense and we have a great defense. It’ll be fun to go up against some of the states best players," says Cheick Kaba, Fridley senior Center/Defensive Tackle.

North has quarterback Zach Yeager, who’s a North Carolina A&T commit, he has scored 14 touchdowns in four games, while teammate Terrance Kamara, who’s a Northern Iowa verbal commit, has seven touchdowns of his own. All told the Polars offense is nearly scoring at will.

"We’ve waited a very long time to play in a game like this. We’ve played together since the third grade and I know we have a good team with a lot of balance," says Micah Niewald, Fridley senior Safety/Wide Receiver.

"Our kids have stayed in great shape and they’ve got a lot of discipline. I’m proud of how much work they’ve put in. They’ve trusted the coaching staff and they’ve executed our plan very well. Tomorrow’s game against North will be a fun one to watch," says Justin Reese, Fridley Head Coach.

Minneapolis North is riding a 57-game regular season winning streak. The game is set for 4:00pm Friday at Fridley High School.
